BREAKING: Oscar Winning A-List Actor Accused of Sexual Assault By Eight Women

-

One of tinseltown’s highest paid actors is in the hot seat Thursday morning after a story published by CNN revealed disturbing allegations about a beloved actor with films like Driving Miss Daisy, The Shawshank Redemption, and Million Dollar Baby, under his belt.

Morgan Freeman has become a household name in America, where his very presence in a film was known to lift spirits and just make people happy. It has now come to light, however, that the women working on those movie sets were not as happy as those sitting in the audience.

According to a CNN story that broke Thursday morning:

“A young production assistant thought she had landed the job of her dreams when, in the summer of 2015, she started work on “Going In Style,” a bank heist comedy starring Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine and Alan Arkin.”

“But the job quickly devolved into several months of harassment, she told CNN. She alleges that Freeman subjected her to unwanted touching and comments about her figure and clothing on a near-daily basis. Freeman would rest his hand on her lower back or rub her lower back, she said.”
The woman claims that Freeman attempted to lift her skirt and asked if she was wearing underwear, at which point she moved away from him. She said that he:
“kept trying to lift up my skirt and asking if I was wearing underwear.”
Freeman’s attempts were futile, as he never got her skirt lifted, but even his cast mate Alan Arkin noticed the behavior. The production assistant says that, “Alan [Arkin] made a comment telling him to stop. Morgan got freaked out and didn’t know what to say.”
This woman is not the only one to come forward. CNN reports that “a woman who was a senior member of the production staff of the movie Now You See Me in 2012 told CNN that Freeman sexually harassed her and her female assistant on numerous occasions by making comments about their bodies.”
The woman says this about working with Freeman:
“He did comment on our bodies… We knew that if he was coming by … not to wear any top that would show our breasts, not to wear anything that would show our bottoms, meaning not wearing clothes that [were] fitted.”
All together, eight people have come forward as part of the investigation into the inappropriate actions of Mr. Freeman. Those people all claim a pattern of behavior from the actor that made their work environment a hostile one.
CNN reports:
“Seven people described an environment at Revelations Entertainment that included allegations of harassment or inappropriate behavior by Freeman there, with one incident allegedly witnessed by Lori McCreary, Freeman’s co-founder in the enterprise, and another in which she was the target of demeaning comments by Freeman in a public setting. One of those seven people alleged that McCreary made a discriminatory remark regarding a female candidate for a job at the Producers Guild of America, where McCreary is co-president.”
Freeman is known for being an out-of-touch *sshole, as seen below:
